Complex UV Layout in Maya
Over the last couple of years UV layout in Maya has changed for the better. In this course we're going to be taking a look at some of those changes as we UV map an entire character

Can we use swords since they use to be everyday items?

Lots of competition user added image .
I saw many of you in previous challenges, some I never saw in a challenge before. I wonder how many will stay with us until the final render...
Looking forward to compete against you guys user added image .

Mike, is it okay if we do not just 'abadon' the object, but give it stuff like dents, scratches, etc that do not happen over time?

I think im goin to join this 1, Could do with workin on my textures user added image

Is a ruined / abandoned helicopter ok? < thats my first idea so far- thinking rusty metal, smashed windows, bend rotory blades and and broken tail perhaps.

I know its mainly the object your looking at but could possible do a scene with it in a jungle style environment with grass or weeds/vines growing over it. < but thats a secondary idea >

Although I'm a total infant in Maya, I think I will join this challenge. It will probably be a very poor entry, but it will give me a good before and after picture as I learn.
